Excited to know more Justin Timberlake? Well, check out the story below!
In the latest celebrity update, Justin Timberlake was on his way to chat to a radio station in New York City when he met Tina DiLascio, whose 13 years old daughter Giana underwent surgery on a serious blockage in her pituitary gland last year.
As Tina told Justin all about her child bravery story during her health battles, the heartthrob was so impressed he even asked to meet her.
In fact, Giana was waiting outside the building, so Tina raced outside to take her in to meet Justin, who happily waited for her. Giana is a huge fan of Justin and was very thrilled to be introduced to one of her idols. The two chatted for ‘several minutes’.
Justin also asked Giana if she had watched his performance on the MTV Video Music awards on Sunday during their chat according to TMZ.
Giana also revealed that she really enjoyed seeing him take to the stage to belt out a medley of Justin’s hits, reunite with his ‘N SYNC band mates and receive the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award for his career achievements.
Giana told to his idol that he was the ‘next Michael Jackson’ and the R&B star was clearly blown away by the compliment as he bowed his head and said “thank you”.
The teenager belongs to the ‘Make a Wish Foundation,’ a charity which helps children with life threatening realize their dreams.
Giana also asked JT if they could pose together for a photograph before Justin had to leave for his radio interview. The 32 years old star quipped that he would only agree if she made the picture her screen saver.
The singer-actor told Giana to “be well” and gave her a huge hug before they went their separate ways.
